Waving the Geek Flags: Jurassic World's JazzLand Makeover
Jurassic World managed to secure a spot in box office history after just 24 hours. The reboot of Steven Spielberg’s mid Nineties blockbusters raked in 82.8 million dollars on opening day, placing it this all time. However, locals will be more interested in the locale than the numbers. The theme park setting for the film is actually a made-over Six Flags New Orleans.
Sync Up Film Turns the Focus on Industry
New Orleans is filled with some of the world’s best creative talent. Yet, the City often lags behind when it comes to actual industry and infrastructure to support the arts. Eight years ago, the Jazz and Heritage Foundation took some steps to remedy that situation by starting Sync Up and then later teaming up with NOVAC. The cinema portion is a three day conference and mini-fest that aims to focus on the production behind film (and provide lots of entertainment in the process).
Today in NOLA: 3.09.15
Throw back some Jameson today. If you’re in a more mellow mood, check out a screening of the The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. For younger tastes, Peter Deranges is in town signing books. On this date in 1804, the Three Flags Ceremony marked the transfer of Upper Louisiana to France, before France transferred it to the United States. Now, more to do this Monday.
Room 220: Katrina & the Rapture
By Room 220
Alright, alright. This post really isn’t about a literary event—it’s about a film screening, the New Orleans premiere of Good People Go To Hell, Saved People Go To Heaven at 7p.m. on Sunday, March 1 at Indywood (628 Elysian Fields). But since the Room 220 editors had a hand in organizing the event, it will also include some bookish elements: namely, the inclusion of a couple celebrated authors as part of a panel discussion following the film.
Short-List: Louisiana at the Oscars

Today in NOLA: 1.20.15
Today established local trumpeter Kermit Ruffins does his weekly thing at Bullet's. For those who want a night off from music, Siberia is hosting trivia night and Blue Ruin is playing at Indywood. On this day in 1973, Jerry Lee Lewis made his debut at the Grand Ole Opry. Lewis had promised to abstain from obscenities during the show, but he broke his promise.
Hollywood South Absent at Oscars
Hollywood South had a great run at the Oscars. First, there was the feel good story of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. In 2013, Beasts of the Southern Wild received four nominations and even more cache in buzz. The following year, locally shot films like Twelve Years a Slave and Dallas Buyer’s Club dominated the awards. However, when nominations were released today (1.15), Louisiana was conspicuously missing.
